Walking the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is one of the greatest accomplishments in modeling, but perhaps an even bigger deal is wearing the über-prestigious fantasy bra. Each year, the honor goes to a resident Victoria’s Secret Angel, and for this year’s show in Shanghai, 27-year-old model Lais Ribeiro is The Chosen One.
Ribeiro first walked the fashion show back in 2010 and was officially crowned as an Angel in 2015. The Brazilian revealed the news via Instagram this morning with a photo of her wearing the bra, and it’s so blinged out that I’m basically blind.
I’ve been holding this secret for too long and I am beyond honored to announce that I will be wearing the Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra this year! I am very happy and thankful for my Victoria’s Secret family for trusting me and all the support from my on family, friends and fans! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! 😭😭😭 its official!! 💎😭
The bra was designed by jewelry designer Mouawad and weighs more than 600 carats, putting it at a value of two million dollars. According to People, 6,000 gemstones were hand-stitched on a Victoria’s Secret Dream Angels Demi Bra in almost 350 hours just to make it.
